One day after having dinner after Christmas, I walked to Chinatown to check out what business is going on without the Chinese New Year market for another year. Seemed like the action had started. There were sales of Chinese New Decorations.
圣诞节后有一天吃完晚餐，我走到牛车水看看这一年又没有年货市场是闸门做生意。 已经开始了。 有农历新年装饰品在销售。
🎶Meanwhile, some music for you to enjoy as you read. This piece is part of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, particularly the first of the 4 violin concertos, called Spring.

🎶让大家继续读的时候，欣赏一点音乐。这件作品是维瓦尔第的“四季”的一部分 - 4小提琴协奏曲中的第一首，名为“春天”。

Also stall selling melon seeds and peanuts.
More stall with decorations.
Saying 'hi' to the samsui woman. This statue represents samsui woman who came from China to Singapore and contributed to the construction industry in our early days of development.
It wasn't crowded though it as around dinner time.
The Tintin shop had been around for many years. I wonder how it survives.
There is a Micelin Star Chinese restaurant that I wanted to try one day.
There was a rather new shop dealing with plants. That should be popular for Chinese New Year.
Another melon seeds and peanuts stall.
Smith Street which used to be a food street was in a pathetic state after the food stalls were all closed. Sad.
